Sam Perrin

I’m a freshwater ecologist at the Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics at the Norwegian University for Science and Technology. I’m writing my PhD on the impact of climate change on freshwater ecosystems as part of the Odysseus project. We look at species that are shifting their distribution as a response to temperature warming and their impact on the habitats they colonise.

I grew up in Australia, and have since moved further and further north, living in Canada and Germany on my way to Trondheim, Norway. I get by, one winter at a time.

I’m passionate about science communication, cooking, 90s hip hop and movies. I teach R, freshwater ecology and biogeography. Along with this site, Adam and I also run the currently-on-hiatus podcast Cinematica Animalia.
